COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Embrace a classic! Home Town Blonde is an old world style pilsner, assertively hopped with four premium hop varieties. Tettninger, Saaz, Styrian Golding and Strisselspalt varieties all grace this German-style brew with the complex character you enjoy in a classic pilsner. Expect to pour an elegant blonde glass of beer, crowned with a rich head of foam that resonates with our chorus of hops. Although delicate in appearance, our Hometown Blonde has a backbone, but of course thats no surprise in Wisconsin. Enjoy!

Golden with lots of bubbles but a small head. Aroma of hops. Smooth and dry with no bitterness. A full bodied pilsener

12oz bottle. Pale yellow tan body, highly filtered and transparent. Steady thin white head. Classic Pils taste, respectably hopped..a touch flowery, peppery. Straightforward clean malt body. Very well balanced, with a dry finish. Classic noble hop flavors. Really quite well done.

A very good german pilsner. Nice sharp hops with the malt to back it up. A seasonal which is brewed whenever the brewery has time. The hops this time are a little more asserative then their last effort a few years ago.

kaser (5790) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 20, 2015
Poured from 12oz bottle at home. Bright yellow and clear with a tony ring of white head. Has a grassy, straw, lemon aroma. Mild hops, lemon/fruits, flowers. Very good for a blonde - one of the better of this style Ive had

Skyview (5708) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - JUL 11, 2007
Picked up single 12-oz bottle from Bob McFarland Liquors in McFarland, WI. Pours a clear golden pale blonde brew with a thin and fast dissolving white head. Aroma of muti-grain breakfast cereal, grassy hops, with a touch of honey. Taste is very high carbonated, light bodied with flavors of light multi-grain and some light peppery spice. Finish is a moderate hop bitter aftertaste that quickly disappears.

On tap at the brewery. Comes a clear light gold with a nice white head. Aroma of malt, grass, and spice. Taste is malt, grass, citrus, spice, and yeast. Very nice.

JStax (5635) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - NOV 23, 2012
12 ounce bottle thanks to cbfobes. Thanks! Pours a lighter copper color with a white head of loosely packed foam. The aroma is floral and grassy, with an almost nutty character hidden beneath the pilsnery sweetness. The taste has a nice fruity sweetness with the dry grassyness of the german hops wrapping the beer up with great precision. This is one delicious pilsener. Thanks again, Brandon!

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - AUG 22, 2007
The description on the bottle describes this as a German style Pilsener, but it gets the generic categorization on the site. All of which matters little, since this has nothing to do with the Pilsener style, drinkable though it be. In the glass its golden, nicely carbonated, and has a mediocre head. The aroma is bready malts with a drop of honey, but no sign of the requisite hoppy bitterness. Theres a mild grassy/floral bite to the flavor, but not enough to classify this as a Pils. Okay, I spoze, but not what Id expected.

RBSG 07 Minneapolis Grand Tasting: Pale yellow, light head and lacing. Nose of skunky hops and salty malt. The flavor is malty, husky, some malts. Clean, balanced. Ok.

This pale lager pours a yellow gold color from a 12oz bottle. Small to medium sized white foamy head. Aroma is fruity and sweet. A medium bodied pale lager. The malts are fruity and sweet. The hops are floral and spicy. It has the pale lager crispness and sweet, but lacks that adjunct flavors so common in most of these beer. Its light and crisp, yet it has a whole lot of flavor. Nice beer. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is slightly bitter and spicy
